Architects' desks: Ken Shuttleworth, founder of Make Architects
BD takes a look at the workspaces of architects
Ken Shuttleworth said: “Make’s studio is completely open plan and I sit on the end of a row of desks in the heart of the office - there is always a real buzz here and I like being in ‘the thick of it’.
“I think my desk reflects the ethos of Make - as an employee-owned practice with a non-hierarchical structure we operate in a very open and transparent way. I try to be as informal as possible and because I don’t have my own office or a separate desk I am more approachable - anyone can stop by and have a chat and there is a refreshing lack of protocol.
“I sit on the end of the workbench so I am right by the window and get lots of natural light and a great view of the street. This is really sociable because people wave to me when they walk past - people I know as well as complete strangers!”
